Have they officially announced this. Wow . Thought there would be a few others better to adapt than UA.



this is what I read on a link dated 31 august:

At the Discworld Convention, which just concluded in Birmingham, Sir Terry Pratchett confirmed that the next Discworld TV adaptation by Sky One would be Unseen Academicals, the most recent Discworld novel (at least until I Shall Wear Midnight is released on Friday). This follows the popular and successful adaptations of Going Postal, The Colour of Magic/The Light Fantastic and Hogfather.
And in Heather's case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts, although these were quite difficult to manage and sometimes led her to walk into doors

Well actually he didn't as such. What happened was that Terry and Ian Sharples from Mob Films started talking about what the next film would be and suggested Sourcery at which point a polystyrene football rolled onto the stage and Terry picked it up and asked if they could do anything with this. They then pointedly kept talking about how they couldn't possibly say what the next film would be as there were still ongoing negotiations whilst repeatedly picking the ball up and looking at it.

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

UA makes a certain degree of sense. They have found a great location in Budapest for Going Postal, so an Ankh-Morpork story makes sense. Doing a Watch book would mean seriously committing to an actor to play Sam Vimes and that's not going to be easy as we saw with the furor over David Jason and Sean Astin as Rincewind and Twoflower. Vetinari is one thing - but he's only a relatively small part. The casting for Vimes (and Granny if they ever do a Witch book) is going to be crucial and probably controversial.

UA shouldn't have those problems.

That's a point.

You'd need an actor with a phenominal memory to learn all the Librarian's dialoge!
